What happens when a little girl falls in love with hummingbirds?
Amanda learns to love hummingbirds and to train them to follow her feeder in this fanciful tale. It is sure to fulfill a wishful yearning in us all to live in a moment of delight.
Hummingbirds weigh about 2 ounces, at least the common ones do in this story. They flock to feeders, especially the ones they know well. They are quite bright, these little swift fliers, and will fly into your house for the food if you are not careful to shut the door or window.
This story is fantasy, and on any given day it could have been reality.
Join us for a magical read!

About the Author
Susan has been married to her husband, Arnold, for 34 years. She has a son, Michael, and three grandchildren, who live in Portland, Oregon. She has had many cats, a miniature macaw named Pickles, and an African Grey named Boo. There has also been a large flock of canaries that always find some way to slip into the house. They have entertained the cats a great deal.
She had a shoulder replacement that kept her from painting for about six months. She could, however, when the pain had subsided somewhat, hold a watercolor brush and paint a little every day. And a children’s book took shape and color while the author and illustrator healed.
When she is in Santa Barbara, California, a large flock of hummingbirds demand to be fed and will come into her house to find food if a door is left open when they are hungry.
Although the story seems a bit far-fetched, these little hummingbirds will follow the food into your house, if they can. They are clever and fast and perhaps could have followed Amanda down the street. Amanda was a real child that the author loved.
